The essential water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water and are small enough to be directly absorbed through the small intestine. Once absorbed, they are carried through the bloodstream to the body’s cells and tissues. Water-soluble vitamins can’t be stored in the body, so any excess is eliminated through the urine. It's important to consume foods high in water-soluble vitamins daily.
